    Re the jobless recovery article – nice insight on the way routine jobs are lost in bursts during and after recessions, but it seems a little oversimplified to blame all the losses on automation and none on offshoring. What offshoring killed quickly automation is now assuring will never come back.

    Not sure about love, but money seems not to have been able to buy Romney votes.

    Long forgotten is that the Solid Republican South was solid Democrat stronghold but the South bolted to the Republicans expecting a better deal while the Democrats went through a period of reform. What we are seeing is this being played out now on a national scale and the reform wing of the party is clearly winning. The modern Republican party is in reality part of the old Southern Democrat Party that through generational change, demographics and lifestyle adaptations slowly sinking into national minority status. Calif once a solid Republican state is the model that Republicans can expect going forward . Most likely the social conservative South/Bible belt voting bloc will continue to define the national Republican brand with independents and moderate Democrats looking to 3rd parties for political alternatives.
